Margot Robbie broke out in a big way as the female lead in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, more than holding her own opposite the formidable Leonardo DiCaprio, and now she’s poised to reap the benefits of her success by way of two promising new projects. The Wrap reports that Robbie is in talks to play Jane opposite Alexander Skarsgard in Warner Bros.’ big budget adaptation Tarzan. Harry Potter helmer David Yates is set to direct, and she would join a cast that also includes Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson in what would mark her first big franchise property.
Additionally, the report adds that Robbie is in talks to replace Amanda Seyfried in the psychological thriller Z for Zachariah. The pic revolves around a woman who believes she’s the only survivor after a devastating nuclear event, only to come across two strangers. Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor are expected to star in the film as well. Robbie will next be seen opposite Will Smith in the con man pic Focus.
